Consequently, this idea promotes the thought that students should be frequently challenged with gaining a sense of place ahead of learning the specifics about a focused case study or a generalized theme. There are two key elements to this idea: Students can be shown the location of the place through a series of sequenced maps. Start with the location within a global setting, move through to the continent, through to the country, then region and sub-region. As the maps used to illustrate this are sequenced, take time to highlight the notion of scale and distance, dramatic topological features, significant 'human' aspects and possibly how the location has featured in the media in recent times.
IDEA 14 17 IDEA 15 Cartoons are an invaluable resource for all geography teachers. They can play an important role in any part of the lesson (see Idea 28 in the section on lesson activities). At the start of any lesson, you can tap into students' enthusiasm by asking them to study them and interpret what the cartoon is attempting to show. Cartoons are easily displayed, either via a large poster or by using your laptop and projector. The brain is warmed up very effectively when questions are posed to the students as they study the cartoon.
Information is gradually relayed to them in a series of sequenced reports. They need to make decisions about keeping traffic moving, using diversions. They may also need to consider the impact on other forms of travel. Resources to support the exercise are free to download. Teachers will quickly appreciate the multitude of other skills to be developed during the exercise. 40 In addition to acquiring and developing map skills, students can have great fun applying this knowledge.
